Centuries of Innovation

We starred as cavemen with the will to survive,
Hunting and gathering was the only way we could thrive.
So we invented blades that could kill and cut,
But the meat was raw, it wasn’t enough!
The first flames arose, but now we wanted a sphere,
“What’s that? Oh look, it’s a wheel!”
“What is he saying?” We wanted to know,
Guess what! That’s how language arose!

This is where we fast forward a few years,
The written word has become really important here.
“Aha! The printing press!”, Now that’s a great thought!
But now audio messages were what we sought.
Here comes Alexander with the telephone,
We started to desire to explore the unknown.

We needed a machine for quick calculations,
The computer struck everyone with deep fascination!
All of this inventing had made us tired and lazy,
“A robot you say? No way, that’s crazy!”
But in truth you’re right, this is the modern world,
Anything is possible, nothing is absurd.
